CRANE LAKE, Minn. (WCCO) — Police say 79-year-old Florence Young was thrown from a boat in northern Minnesota after the craft struck a submerged log.

David Quiser, 73, was operating the boat when the incident occurred. When Young went overboard, Quiser jumped in to help, eventually bringing them both back into the boat. They drove back to the marina where they were treated by medical personnel.

Both were subsequently transported to the hospital and treated for hypothermia and minor injuries.

Neither Young nor Quiser were wearing life jackets.
